Where is there Free Boston Ice Skating

The Sochi  Winter Olympics are almost upon us, and there is no better way to get in the spirit than ice skaing in Boston. Ice skating has become a New England tradition over the years and is the perfect way to enjoy the winter season. During the winter months, Boston Common's Frog Pond is turned into a public outdoor skating rink. Ice skating can be a fun activity for an entire family or the perfect romantic date. This ice rink is open everyday of the week, and children & adults of all ages are welcome to join in the fun! Frog Pond ice rink is located conveniently in the middle of the historic Boston Common, which is the United States's oldest park. 

Normally there is an admission and rental fee for ice skating at Frog Pond, but for 44 days Liberty Mutual is giving away free ice skating passes. Each day 100 adult skating/rental passes and 100 children rental (no skating charge for children under the age of 13) will be available to the public. You can get tickets by signing up online and reserving a day to go. Each individual can reserve up to four passes. This festive deal will last until the close of the Winter Olympics on February 23, 2014. This is the type of deal you do not want to miss out on!

Why did Market by Jean-Georges Vongerichten close in Boston?

Guests of Clarendon Square Bed and Breakfast Boston have long been delighted by the culinary options that Boston boasts. Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Market Restaurant at the W Hotel in downtown Boston has been on the top of our list since their opening in 2009.

Jean-Georges closed the doors to his famed Market Restaurant in downtown Boston on December 21st, 2013. The restaurant, known for its farm to table concept and innovative dishes, turned out the lights, closing its only Boston establishment. Citing a "challenging operating market" and rising hotel labor costs in Boston, the Michelin Star chef will focus his attention on his many other restaurants, including Spice Market in New York City. The downtown Boston hotel has committed to refreshing the space and will soon announce who will be joining W Lounge, which features cocktails and small plates.

Though Market will be missed, there is no shortage of amazing restaurants in the City. This New England Bed and Breakfast recommends Mistral, Post390, and Sorellina for any special night out! Mistral showcases uncomplicated French cuisine featuring local ingredients and unique presentation. Their modern elegant interior is sure to impress. Post 390 features something for everyone, from their award winning lobster roll, aged steaks and hand crafted cocktails. We love their warm romantic environment and fireplace in the winter. Sorellina, a sister restaurant of Mistral offers a modern interpretation of regionally inspired Italian and Mediterranean fare. Our favorites include their Foie Gras and Milanese. All three of these restaurants bring incredible food and atmospheres to the Boston restaurant scene.

Your Hosts at this New England Bed and Breakfast are always recommend and are happy to make reservations for you at one of best Boston restaurants or one of your local favorites.
